Title: God If I Saw Her Now 
Artist: Anthony Phillips
Album: The Geese & The Ghost
----------------------------------------------------------------
Here is the simple but sweet chord progression to former Genesis 
member Anthony Phillips' gorgeous song "God If I Saw Her Now" 
from his album "The Ghost and the Geese", released in 1977. I 
couldn't find tabs for this song anywhere on the internet, which 
is why I felt compelled to share it with anyone who may wish to
learn how to play it. Enjoy! :)

Tuning: Standard
Capo: 5th Fret

"Thinking of a girl
As golden as the sun
She loved me not like you, like you, like you"

"It's hard to say for sure.
A child, sixteen, was I
Both virgins did we buy, we buy, we buy"
"You loved her more than me"
